We modified our "re library" by opening with a regular word processor program,
(we used MS Word) then simply deleted those enzymes' lines we didn't 
want, and saved to a different name (eg. "re library 2").  When we want to use
the alternative library, we change its name PRIOR TO LAUNCHING STRIDER
to "re library" while changing the default library to "re library x" or somesuch.
This will cause the program to access your modified library.
